Picard in Docker
Dear GATK/Picard team,
I am new to Picard and was just about to build it, when I noticed that there is a Picard Docker image available - great idea! Is this functional yet? I couldn't find any instructions on how to use it. I gave it a try and did the following:
pulled the picard image
docker pull broadinstitute/picard
then I am trying to run it like so:
docker run -i -t broadinstitute/picard FastqToSam -h
This gives me the usage for FastqToSam so I thought I was on the right track.
However, when running a full fetched command like:
sudo docker run -i -t broadinstitute/picard FastqToSam F1=009_S1_L001_R1_001.fastq.gz F2=009_S1_L001_R2_001.fastq.gz O=test.bam SM=female
I get the following error:

To get help, see http://broadinstitute.github.io/picard/index.html#GettingHelp
Exception in thread "main" htsjdk.samtools.SAMException: Cannot read non-existent file: /usr/picard/009_S1_L001_R1_001.fastq.gz
It seems as if Picard in the container can't find my input files. How would I pass my files correctly to the container?
Any help would be much appreciated!!
Thanks in advance for your time!
